It hasn’t taken long for some top clubs to notice the dissatisfaction Yohan Cabaye has shown with his plight at PSG, and news today that Liverpool are interested in signing him – probably in January.
Yohan Cabaye – during his successful spell at Newcastle United
News today that Liverpool are ready to have talks with French club PSG, over a potential deal to sign former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who has shown on Tyneside that he can be an excellent player in the Premier League.
One of the pieces of news this last week, was that French publication le10sport.com ran a poll where the majority of PSG fans wanted Cabaye sold, and use the money to bring in new players to the Paris-based club.
Yohan has not found life easy at PSG, who have lots of very good central midfield players in their squad, and he has found it hard to get too many games in Paris.
Arsenal were keen on the play-maker a year ago, and the news earlier this week was that they were watching developments in Paris, and could make a bid for the 36 times capped French International, but they probably think he’s still overpriced.
And it wouldn’t surprise us if other top English clubs become interested in the player.
It would seem like PSG would be happy enough to recoup the £20M they paid to Newcastle for him last January, but don’t expect Newcastle to try to bring the play-maker back to Tyneside.
He’s out of our range – and we cannot compete with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, and an increasing number of English clubs it seems.
We know that – because that’s what Alan Pardew keeps telling us – so it must be true. :D.
And even if Newcastle did pursue Cabaye, it’s unlikely he would want to return to Newcastle, who could not offer him European football.
The only positive for him would be that he would again be a regular starter on Tyneside – but he wouldn’t come back to the Magpies if a club as big as Liverpool are after him.
That’s where Newcastle are as a club these days – a middle of the table Premier League club at best – with nothing much exciting going on – well not in terms of the football.
It’s all so very sad.
